“We are all looking forward to working with them over an exciting and challenging training and playing programme this season.
“The selection of three U20s players from last season into the Senior England Elite Squad along with a number of former U20s players who have progressed into the Senior Squad this season, demonstrates the important function the U20s programme plays in the development of the players.
“However for this group of players, the hard work starts now. This is just another step on their journey to becoming world class players and representing the senior England squad in the future.”
The team face France on February 27th, followed by Scotland in March. They will also compete in the U20s Nations Cup next summer.
